Fire rated glass
No matter the type of business you run, whether it be a restaurant, warehouse, or office, it is important to protect the safety of your staff and visitors. Fire is a major threat to the safety of a business, and therefore making sure a building is secure as possible is vital.
Having the right measures in place to slow the spread of a fire, alert occupants of the danger and creating a safe passage of escape will help to meet the latest legalisation and make people feel safer when an emergency does happen. There are many components which make up a successful fire safety strategy, including fire rated glass.
Fire rated glass is used to slow the spread of fire and help keep a business to stay safe during a dangerous situation. A specialist type of glass is used as it is more resistant to the heat from a fire than normal glass. There are different types which can be used, depending on the requirements of each individual building.
Here at EA-RS Passive Fire Protection we strongly recommend that fire rated glass should be used as it can provide many benefits within both commercial and industrial environments. The work we do can help safeguard emergency escape routes, reinforce windows and help your business abide by building regulations.
Fire rated glass works hand in hand with any other fire safety enhancements you look to make to your property. If you require assistance in installing fire rated glass, or are unsure if you require it, please contact us today.
